Default My request for pilots who report bugs or ED for retitling subforums

I’ve noticed that every aircraft has a “bugs” subforum. This creates a difficulty when reading about new bugs, because often the report title is a simple description of the bug, but not the aircraft involved.

For example, one might see “cockpit lights flash when firing guns” and it’s listed in the “bugs” subforum. The aircraft is not readily identified, so I have to click on it to find out which plane it is.

As interesting as that might sound, I’d rather not read bug reports unless it’s of a plane that I fly (and of course no one knows which those might be ) And if I was a dev, it’d be nice to be able to quickly see that a bug was related to a product that my company makes.

So my request is that we start putting the aircraft name in the title, and/or that ED change the name of the subforum “bugs” to include the aircraft name.

Thank you.

I agree ... and since its really unlikely that every user will prefix its thread like that, it seems more practical that an ED Moderator adds the aircraft name to each "Bugs" subforum.

Well, if I'm not mistaking, every thread of a module you click on has a subforum for reporting bugs. Obviously that subforum is about the module you just clicked on. Unless I'm overlooking your point here?

Yes, you are overlooking the fact that most people uses the "New Posts" search to check on what's new since your last visit ... and there the Bugs look like this:



To what aircraft does it refer?

Only module with Terrain Avoidance Mode atm.

But I do agree though, when using 'New Posts' feature, then you are missing some forum information. Another column with the parent forum name would be good.
